Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Hickory District Curriculum
The curriculum of the Hickory Public Schools follows the Standard Course of Study, which includes the newly-adopted Common Core State Standards for mathematics (K-12) and English Language Arts (K-12), and the North Carolina Essential Standards for Social Studies and Science. Rigorous programs such as Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) are offered, and challenging curricula in automotive technology, and hospitality are available too.
The Hickory Career & Arts Magnet school offers a standard curriculum that is embellished with career-based academies, offering the opportunity for students to get a head-start on their post-secondary preparations, sometimes even earning a certification related to their chosen career field and possibly even college credits. Hand-on learning is key at HCAM, enabling students to gain skills as well as academic knowledge that will ensure preparedness for post-secondary life.

Testimonials and Case Studies from Our Parents
SchoolTutoring Academy has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was very self-conscious about her difficulties with the math section of the SAT. SchoolTutoring Academy’s Academic Directors created an action plan that boosted my daughter’s score and confidence level.
SchoolTutoring Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades. Test Prep Academy has not only improved my son’s standardized test scores but also his high school math and English grades.
SchoolTutoring Academy Increased My SAT Score By 200 Points
My son’s math marks in high school have always been weak so I found it very beneficial that his ACT tutor worked on solidifying his fundamentals while prepping for the ACT.
SchoolTutoring Academy gave my daughter the confidence she needed to boost her SAT score Thank you!
SchoolTutoring has played an important role in improving our son’s confidence and attitude towards school. His grades have also improved steadily throughout the school year.
My daughter was able to improve her test scores after a few months of tutoring with SchoolTutoring. However, while raising test scores is great, the real payoff is in the self-confidence that she gained.
I just wanted to send a quick note to say thank-you! My son is very impressed with his tutor and looks forward to each session. What’s particularly amazing about this is our son has never really looked forward to math or school for that matter!
We are so happy with the results of your tutoring program and academic support. Homework time was such a stressful evening for the entire evening before we brought your tutors into our home. Thank you for all your help!
Our daughter, a first grader, struggled with basic reading and handwriting. When she began with SchoolTutoring she was almost a year behind her class. Within a year of being enrolled, she is reading above her grade level and has the confidence to match.

Chalk Talk: Starting Early: the Key to Finding Your Calling
Starting as high-school freshmen or even younger, students should take “interest inventories” to start discovering their strengths and interests. Many good inventories can be found online, often through a state’s workforce or employment services branch. These surveys allow the user to select skills they have or would like to have, the working conditions they might like (indoors or outdoors, dealing with people or working alone, etc), and the interests they have—reading, taking things apart, creating. A compilation of the answers will result in ideas for careers that encapsulate what opportunities might best fit the survey-taker.
